Butcher, Carlin Named Harris Teeter Student-Athletes of the Week
Cara Butcher | Cross Country | Junior | North Massapequa, N.Y. | Elementary Education
For the third consecutive meet and fourth time this season, Cara Butcher finished first among her teammates at this weekend's CofC Classic at Winthrop Farm in Rock Hill, S.C. The junior not only won the meet individually, but did so in dominant fashion. With her time of 18:13.5 in the 5K race, Butcher beat out second place Kaitlyn Lingard of Western Carolina (18:41.7) by more than 28 seconds. The native of North Massapequa N.Y. was a key factor in the Cougars winning the team championship as well with a strong score of 21, nearly cutting second place Western Carolina's score of 60 in a third.
